This paper is aimed at: (i) showing that some competitiveness principles are key issues for local development, and (ii) bringing forth some indicators that permit to establish the relative competitive position of a region concerning the trade of goods and services at different aggregation levels. On such a basis, the paper suggests a methodology that combines elements from export demand and inter-regional demand analysis, when demand is segmented, there is product differentiation and intrafirm trade characterized by agglomeration, scale and scope economies in firms.

Keywords : Trade; local and regional competitiveness; economic growth.
